The Very Best Gift
The very first time my daughter Jessica was placed in my arms was wonderful and scary and beautiful and emotional. I had no idea what I was doing. I had never babysat infants before, or really even been around one. I didn’t know I had to support her head because she couldn’t do it herself, or even that babies had a soft spot on those tiny heads. I didn’t know how to change diapers or swaddle her with her blanket. I didn’t know how to feed her. The only thing I did know was that I loved her more than life itself and in that moment when they placed that tiny, helpless, precious baby in my arms, my world changed for the better. My heart was full.
Because of those beautiful moments, I can’t help but think of my Savior. The Son of God who came for me in the form of such a helpless, humble, tiny little Being. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords, as a Baby, for me. What truer form of a humble Servant could there ever be? The perfect Son of God who needed His head supported, His diaper changed, His tiny body swaddled. Who needed someone to feed Him and rock Him and hold Him and sing lullabies to Him, all the while knowing He would die for us some day. There could be no truer picture of love. And when He came to live in my heart, He changed my world for the better.
You might not know everything there is to know about church or the Bible. You might not know all the songs that are sung or the Bible stories told~ and that’s okay. The first and most important thing you need to know is that a little Baby was born that first Christmas Day for you, because He loved you more than life itself, and once you hold that Baby in your heart, your world will change for the better. Fill your heart this Christmas season with the love of that Baby Who was born for you. Who grew up and became a man Who would die for the sins of the world. For you. For me. There is no truer, more beautiful Gift you can ever receive. A humble Servant in the form of a Baby, a picture of Love for all mankind and THE GIFT, the VERY BEST GIFT the world was ever given. Merry Christmas my dear friends. ❤️❤️🎄
